According to Guilherme Paulus, the idea of starting CVC came with his co-founder, Carlos Vicente Cerchiari who also doubled as a state deputy. Paulus adds that the two had met on a trip and Carlos shared his idea of opening a tourist company in Santo André. Since Paulus lived and worked in Sao Paulo and had no capital to invest, Carlos suggested him to a society where he would work, and Carlos would spend on it. Guilherme Paulus adds that even though he was employed at Casa Faro, his mind was focused on the new project, and as a result, he accepted the offer. They opened a store in a small street at a busy exit of a cinema where there was a high flow of people. They did business for four years, but later Carlos left, and Paulus continued alone.
